When my daughter Ally turned 3, I thought it would be a good time to start talking about how to use the telephone. So we had her talk on the phone to relatives and she helped us dial when we made a phone call.
But now that Ally’s 4 I wanted to teach her some important phone numbers such as her daddy at work, her grandparents and her aunts. And I wanted to have these phone numbers posted in a way that would be easy for Ally to read so she could dial them without our help.
So I made a picture phone number list. I printed and cut out some head shots of each person and wrote their phone number next to the picture, each in a different color. Now when Ally wants to call her daddy at work, she looks for his picture and then punches in the phone number next to his picture.
The picture phone list has also gotten Ally more interested in practicing making phone calls. (The new Disney Princess phone we bought her didn’t hurt either). And now I have a little more peace of mind knowing that if she needed to make a phone call on her own, she could do it.
